BASF helps to tackle challenges of urban living in New York City

21 July 2015

BASF hosted a weeklong programme in New York City to address one of the world’s pressing future challenges: urban development to meet the growing population. Thought leaders, scientists, students and citizens participated in a series of events to identify sustainable solutions.

Red Hook, Brooklyn, served as the case study on how public-private partnerships can help resolve the evolving needs of global cities.

"BASF is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year,” said Wayne T Smith, Chairman and CEO, BASF Corporation and member of the Board of Executive Directors, BASF SE (pictured). "Our history shows that chemistry is an enabler for new ideas and solutions. As we celebrate this milestone, we are connecting people and ideas to make meaningful contributions to society in accordance with our corporate purpose: We create chemistry for a sustainable future.”
